Spreadsheet Modeling & Decision Analysis: A Practical Introduction to Management Science, Revised (with ...
South-Western College Pub
I highly recommend this book if you are building decision models using Excel and/or Crystal Ball. I used this book for an MBA class and subsequently built numerous decision models using the concepts outlined in this book. The examples are excellent and insightful. This book taught me everything I needed to know to build complex real world decision models using Excel.
A Beginner's Guide to Structural Equation Modeling: Third Edition
Randall E. Schumacker
Richard G. Lomax
Easy to read and understand; needs a second edition
No one expects statistics to be easy reading, especially when it concerns complicated models such as structural equation modeling (SEM). Nevertheless, this book manages to do just that. Schumacker and Lomax have successfully put together a guide that explains to beginners (like myself) in simple terms how the whole thing works. As with most books that treat complex models, some basic knowledge ...

Excellent introductory financial modeling book
There are different levels of financial modeling, and this book is excellent for the novice modeler. The author discusses how to create spreadsheet models of financial statements and then moves on to more advanced financial topics, such as mean-variance optimization and binomial trees.

Stats: Modeling the World (3rd Edition)
David E. Bock
Paul F. Velleman
Look no further
I have taught AP Stats for several years suffering through with a book I really hated. I felt that perhaps it was the subject though I continued to think Stats was really an awesome course. Now that I have my hands on this book, I have read every word on every page (the humor is most appreciated), truly reviewing the book to determine if I wanted to adopt it for my school. Not only am I ...
Semantic Web for the Working Ontologist: Effective Modeling in RDFS and OWL
Finally, a good textbook
There are maybe half a dozen or so books in my library that have defined the body of knowledge that has been the subject of my career. All the others are interesting (or not) but not the definitive description of the subject. It is very rare when a new one comes along. But when one does succinctly and clearly define and describe a subject area I have been struggling to master for several ...
Functions Modeling Change, Student Study Guide: A Preparation for Calculus
Wonderful precalculus deep inside the functions and modeling
I really have difficulties to understand some reviewers given one star for such a wonderfull book. If you read this book before Uni, you will have a stable ground for calculus. All frequently used functions and their practical usage as modelling tools are lucidly explained. I finally know what hyperbolic functions are, I finally know how the path from given data to an appropriate model works. ...
Statistics, Data Analysis & Decision Modeling (4th Edition)
James R. Evans
Stats book purchase
Good book in the same condition as was listed in the description posted by the seller.
Structural Equation Modeling With AMOS: Basic Concepts, Applications, and Programming, Second Edition ...
Barbara M. Byrne
Great reference source
This is an excellent book for beginners to AMOS, as well as to anyone who needs an occasional straightforward and detailed reference source. That said, don't expect detailed discussions of the theoretical underpinnings of SEM. I would classify this as a strictly practical, hands-on approach - and completely indispensable because of it. One little bit of concern I have is that this book was ...
Break into Modeling for Under $20
St. Martin's Griffin
The ONLY book on modeling you will ever need!
What a Godsend this book has been for me! I always had the desire and "stats" but never the information and/or direction I've needed to break into the modeling business. Thanks to Judy Goss and her book, I have finally been able to achieve my dream. I now have an agent and have begun working thanks to carefully following the advice in this book, (which is comprehensive and easy for the layperson ...
Managerial Decision Modeling with Spreadsheets (2nd Edition)
Good Beyond the Classroom
This book was meant for use within a university classroom setting. Surprisingly, unlike most textbooks, you can actually use this book in the real world. For example, a lot of business plan books and articles casually mention business forecasting. Unfortunately, the large majority of them barely mention any details on how to construct them. Well this book covers it in depth. As for other ...
Functions Modeling Change, Student Solutions Manual: A Preparation for Calculus
This book is supposed to be a solutions manual. It gives answers, but does a poor job of explaining how to arrive at the correct answer. Much more detail and step by step instruction would be helpful in this book. Also, it only gives some of the answers, which is frustrating if you are having trouble figuring out a problem. I found this book to be helpful with a few problems, but it was not ...
Occupancy Estimation and Modeling: Inferring Patterns and Dynamics of Species Occurrence
Darryl I. MacKenzie
James D. Nichols
Robust Wildlife Species Distribution Modeling Tool
This book gathers the most recent improvements for wildlife species presence absence models, a recurrent problem in ecology research. In a brilliant way, MacKenzie and his co-authors present the results of their last papers and discuss in a didatic manner the applications of simple improvements in statistical models that make them more than usefull for field ecologists, decision makers and others ...
The Data Warehouse Toolkit: The Complete Guide to Dimensional Modeling (Second Edition)
One of the best IT books I've ever read...
...I'll be short after so many comments. What I like especially about this book: - The business/industry based approach which leads quite naturally to different concepts per business (as the CRM outriggers due to the very large customer dimension). Nevertheless, as the authors point out, these concepts may also be valid in other businesses/industries. It is only a best practise example. I like ...
Data Modeling Made Simple: A Practical Guide for Business and IT Professionals, 2nd Edition
Take IT With You(r) Series
Extremely comprehensive yet still Simple
I think very highly of Data Modeling Made Simple (the first edition), so when this second edition came out I had great expectations - which were not only met but also exceeded. Although this second edition is more than twice the number of pages as the first edition, it is still an easy read. Here are my favorite things about this book: 1. Clearly delivers on its ten objectives. Read the ...
Microsoft Office Excel 2007: Data Analysis and Business Modeling (Bpg -- Other)
Wayne L. Winston Ph.D.
Very useful book for financial analysis.
When I just started my career as a financial analyst, a project manager gave me a pile of condensed training materials which included the excel functions that I would be using most frequently. I bought this Data Analysis & Modeling book 2-3 weeks after my first day of work and I found many of those taught in the book aligned with those on the training materials from my manager. The book has been ...
Multilevel Modeling (Quantitative Applications in the Social Sciences)
Sage Publications, Inc
a model introduction to a complicated topic
Sage university papers on quantitative applications are presented as brief and inexpensive treatments of specialized topics in statistics and data analysis. Some are well worth the price, while some leave you wishing you used the money towards acquiring a full-length treatise or textbook. If you need to learn about multilevel modeling on your own, Douglas Luke's Multilevel Modeling is worth much ...
Applied Longitudinal Data Analysis: Modeling Change and Event Occurrence
Judith D. Singer
John B. Willett
Oxford University Press, USA
This book is very complex, which may scare some people off. However, the information is incredible and very in-depth. I think the strength of this book lies in its concrete examples of different sets of longitudinal data. The authors slowly take you through each step and you eventually come to anticipate which step they are going to take next. The in-depth discussion of the multilevel model of ...
Principles and Practice of Structural Equation Modeling, Second Edition (Methodology In The Social Sciences)
Rex B. Kline PhD
The Guilford Press
Highly recommended for anyone transitioning from LISREL
AMOS can seem so simple that it is confusing. Where are the obfuscating command lines that we used to love? If you know and loathed another program in the same ilk, you may have problems with the ease of the AMOS graphic interface and command language. If this is the case, then this book is for you.
